FAQ’s

What is the K12 Mission?

The K12 mission is to transform learning for every student we serve.

How Does K12 Provide Students with an Individualized Education?

We believe every student is uniquely brilliant and deserves a high-quality education to help them thrive in school and ultimately be prepared for post-secondary education and a career. We pay careful attention to each learner’s unique strengths, needs, and interests.

How Does Online School Work?

In online school, the classroom is in the home or on the road, wherever an Internet connection is available. Students enrolled in an online public school sometimes gather in virtual classrooms and regularly receive support from their teachers via phone, online meetings, and sometimes face-to-face.

What Learning Options Does K12 Provide?

K12 offers the following three learning options:
